Roy Blunt is more than Deputy Majority Whip of the U.S. House this year, he’s in charge of rounding up votes for legislation for President Bush. Bush’s education proposal will be a good first test for Blunt. It includes some popular items, like increased funding for struggling schools, and higher standards for student performance. But it would create a voucher program that most Democrats are staunchly opposed to. Blunt says Bush will include Democrats in the early stages on these bills to get their support.
